Fringe’s Twitter revival campaign appears to have worked, and Fox has ordered a 13 episode Fifth season to air this fall. This might be an abbreviated last kick at the can, but I believe every show should get a chance end off properly. After all, television is an art, not an industrial process. There are some anime shows that only lasted for 1 season that are still kicking out spin-offs and trading figures, and I think they can all owe that solid legacy to a tight ending and fewer filler episodes.
Fringe’s John Noble revealed some tidbits about the upcoming Fringe Season 4 Finale. Since the show’s current fate is in flux, the producers decided to shoot two endings, one that leaves the series open to a new season, and another that wraps Fringe for good. Both endings will deal with Olivia’s supposed predestined death.
the episode airs April 20 on Fox.
The producers of Fringe have gone to twitter in a last ditch attempt to save their favourite show from cancellation. The hashtag #WhereYouBelong was seen during last week’s episode, causing fans to tweet and speculate about its meaning. Fox has decided to show new hashtags for each of the 7 new episodes left in Fringe’s run, but will it be enough to save the show?
The First ever Fringe Fan Event is taking place in Vancouver on August 10-12, and pre-reg passes have already sold out! The show may have enough juice for a 5th season yet.
